Michelle and Hayley celebrated their birthdays in the same month and we held a combined party for them. I made a cake with 3 gift boxes, one a pastel blue and light peach ribboned gift box and the other 2 with a figurine each for Michelle and Hayley.
I was inspired by Michelle’s love of blue to make her a tiny “Michelle” figurine in a pretty blue dress on a pale pink gift box. I added lace, made using Crystal Lace to the figurine’s petticoat and I included a chilren’s book for the days when Michelle taught her 4 year olds at creche. The little figurine has the same peaceful smile that Michelle always shows us!
Hayley has a passion for colour which she uses with skillful abandon in our scrapbooking classes so I was inspired to do this colourful owl for her. I used my favourite shade of blue and different flower and heart cutters to complete the sassy owl. The gift box I covered in a warm yellow, dusted with tangerine. She spent the morning batting her pretty eyelashes at us and watched both Michelle and Hayley open all their presents!
